An African anarchist-communist approach

Racism has been a curse in South Africa, and remains embedded in the society. But how scientific are racist ideas? Where do they come from? And how can we fight racism and create a truly equal and fair society? What do we as revolutionary anarchists think?

by Jon Bekken, Anarcho-Syndicalist Review #74, Summer, 2018, page 10

A wave of teacher revolts swept the United States from March to May, closing schools across the South and Southwest--states where legislators have limited teachers' right to unionize and bargain, and have taken advantage of weakened unions to slash education budgets.
